    TC-11 is a fully programable multi-touch synthesizer for the iPad. This video demos some of the 64 included presets, and shows the multi-touch performance and device motion control. TC-11 uses multi-touch control like no other app. The relationships between touches are controllers that drive synthesis. Since TC-11 is fully programable, any touch controller can change any synthesis parameter. It's been a long road to finish the app, but it's live and out there. I hope you enjoy it!

    • 'Idiom' - An Evening with Hindole Majumdar and Kevin Schlei

      'An Evening with Hindole Majumdar and Kevin Schlei' was a concert on August 19th, 2012 that explored electronics + tabla. This piece, 'Idiom,' is a fully improvised, on-the-spot composition by myself and Hindole. A basic rhythmic pattern forms that he and I use to ground ourselves, and we play off of each other's accents and phrases. I am using my iPad instrument TC-11 with three iPads, and Hindole is playing his D tabla set with an extra E dayan. You can find more information about Hindole at his website, sites.google.com/site/hindolemajumdar/, and about TC-11 at www.bitshapesoftware.com/instruments/tc-11

        Seth Warren-Crow and I pair together the tabla and TC-11 to see just how similar the two musical interfaces are, in performance and sonority. These three pieces were taken from an evening of exploring short-form improvisations.

          I started playing with Beep Street's Impaktor (beepstreet.com) on my desk. Then I moved to the floor so I could trigger it with my tabla. I was having so much fun I added in TC-11 (bitshapesoftware.com) for some extra flavor. Impaktor makes use of the mic input to trigger drum modeling synthesis. Its responsiveness makes it an incredible tool for percussionists. The TC-11 patch is a variation on Northern Lights, tuned to the tabla and Impaktor.

              'Carrion' is a live electronic improvisation that feeds the audio into an 8 channel surround sound system. The movement of the sound in space is controlled algorithmically, and complements the gestural motions of the synthesized sound. 'An Evening with Hindole Majumdar and Kevin Schlei' was a concert on August 19th, 2012 that explored electronics + tabla. I am using my iPad instrument TC-11 with three iPads, and Hindole is playing his D tabla set with an extra E dayan.

                      Three more little improvisations between Seth Warren-Crow (tabla) and I (TC-11). Seth plays with extended tabla technique, and I try a few different patches to complement it. These three pieces were taken from an evening of exploring short-form improvisations.
